Tauranga Musical Theatre is an integral part of the Tauranga community. The society history goes back to a performance in the Tauranga Town Hall on the 7th of September 1932.
Tauranga Musical Theatre has a proud history of high calibre productions, we generally stage 4 shows each year. Our ‘major production’ is at Baycourt Theatre, with 3 smaller productions (including a Youth Only show) in our own Westside Theatre on 17th Avenue. The smaller productions are important tools within the society for growing our members. It is a smaller and safer environment for new performers, and also a great training ground.
We are an amateur society, drawing our members from the wider western Bay of Plenty area. Our society offers opportunities for performers (Actors, Singers, Musicians), persons interested in backstage craft (Costumes, Lighting, Sound, Directing, Production Management, Set Construction, Musical Direction, Choreography) and management (Marketing, Committee).
Ours is an inclusive society, with a diverse range of members offering their collective skills. There are always opportunities for people with a wide range of skills to become involved, and in return, experience the ‘kinship’ of a fun loving and entertaining group of people.
As with any society or club, there is a social aspect that can’not be overlooked. There is a strong social scene at Tauranga Musical Theatre that provides an important change of scenery from producing the shows, and also valuable time to meet people and build a solid team atmosphere.
With a sound financial position, and a history of quality productions and high patronage, the Society is very healthy. We are in the midst of an exciting time of growth, systems enhancement, and future planning where we hope to see the theatre continue to flourish.
With a good membership that is growing every year the future looks very strong for Tauranga Musical Theatre. With an abundance of talent in the community we will continue to provide opportunities within the performing arts to both performers and backstage crew and endeavour to keep this a strong part of the Tauranga community, as well as providing entertainment to our audiences. Why not get involved in the Tauranga community, and join our community of friends – at Tauranga Musical Theatre.
